TRACING UNDERCURRENTS: SONIC ROUTES BETWEEN JERUSALEM AND TEL-AVIV
invites you to sample the diversity of the Israeli experimental sound scene.
Israel, being a country of immigrants boasts a culturally rich and diverse tradition. However, more often than not these expressions have been limited to the more traditional arts. The mid-nineties however, have seen a surge in experimental audio work, coming especially from Jerusalem. In addition independent labels flourished in Jerusalem, a city which is in effect the conflict embodied and has seen many of its young people move abroad or to cosmopolitan Tel-Aviv.
Tracing Undercurrents tries to map the cultural and musical diversity of contemporary experimental music tracing routes in-between Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv, looking for aesthetic convergences and differences, and probing the contextual conditions for experimental sound production in Israel. For the first time it brings 11 young cutting-edge performers to The Netherlands whose musical repertoires range from electro-pop, clicks and cuts, noise, to experimental DJ sets and experimental electronic delicacies. In composition, as in its diversity “Tracing Undercurrents” is unique and a premiere for Europe.
